The Tata Winger is a van launched by Tata Motors in 2007,[1] It based on the Phase 3 Renault Trafic Mk1 van,[2] but fitted with Tata's own 2 litre diesel engines.

Variants[edit]

The Winger is offered in six variants and two seating configuration: long or short wheelbase, high and low roof versions and also specialised ambulance and school bus versions, as well as the plain panel van. The top of the range is a flat roof, air-conditioned variant is a ten-seater, while the remaining five versions are offered as either 13 or 14 seaters, taking the total number of variants to 11.

The Winger is powered by a modified version of the 2.0 litre diesel engine that is currently offered on the Tata Sumo. This 1948 cc engine comes with a turbo-charged, inter-cooled (TCIC) version in all the variants, except in the smaller length, entry-level Winger van. The non-turbo-charged version of the engine develops a peak power of 68 PS (50 kW) compared to the 90 PS (66 kW) that the TCIC version puts out. The Winger meets Bharat Stage III emission standards, except for the base variant, which is BS-II compliant.

Transmission and suspension[edit]

The Winger van is front-wheel-driven, with the engine mounted longitudinally as in the original Renault Trafic. A five-speed transaxle of Renault design is used. The Winger's suspension is MacPherson strut up front with a beam axle with parabolic leaf springs at the rear.
